BOISE, Idaho- A 10-year-old girl reeled in a fish nearly five times her size!

With a little muscle and a lot of help from her dad, Lily Hornish caught a 330-pound halibut during a trip to Alaska.

Her family says they’ve been fishing for years and their daughter is one of the most patient people on the water.

“She’s relentless. Doesn’t matter if anything is biting there or not. If she sees it or thinks there’s a fish there, she’s going to work it,” said her father, Bill Hornish.

The natural born angler wasn’t the only one with a big catch. Her 12-year-old brother Carson who stands 5-feet tall caught a fish nearly as tall as he is, coming in at 52-inches.
